When I think of summer, the image that comes to mind is Malibu. The beaches and casual lifestyle evoke images of effortless beauty. So today, I’m channeling the beauty products that speak to Malibu’s boho beach vibe. To get that ‘Malibu’ glow, here’s what I’m recommending…
1. Hampton Sun Sunless Tanning Mist
2. Guerlain Orchidée Impériale The UV Beauty Protector
3. NARS St. Lucia Illuminating Multiple or try Luxor)
4. By Terry Eye Designer Palette in Smoky Nude
5. Urban Decay Revolution Lipglosses in Kinky and Failbait
6. Philosophy Sea of Love
7. Bobbi Brown Nail Polish in Naked and Nude (review)
8. Fresh® Sugar Nude Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15
9. Suave Professionals Sea Mineral Infusion Sea Salt Spray
10. Kiehl’s Activated Sun Protector 100% Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50
In the midwest where I live, my golden glow comes from a can, not the beach. I’ve been using new Hampton Sun Sunless Tanning Mist and getting the most natural faux tan. It looks like I’ve spent hours at the pool. What I like about this is the nourishing formula, 360 application, light scent and beautiful color.
I’m all about sun protection and if you like a tinted formula for your face, Guerlain Orchidée Impériale The UV Beauty Protector has UV protection and an anti-pollution shield, as well as age-defying, radiance-boosting performance. Kiehl’s new Activated Sun Protector 100% Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50 is ultra-lightweight, water resistant and good for face and body, so it’s great to keep in your beach bag.
SoCal beauty to me is all about sunkissed nudes and glowy skin. I’m obsessed with the new By Terry Eye Designer Palette in Smoky Nude. There are ten gorgeous eyeshadow shades that can be worn we or dry. I have to tell you…these are absolutely the most silky eyeshadows I’ve ever used. Amazing! The new Urban Decay Revolution Lipglosses (in Kinky and Failbait) are long-lasting and not sticky, yet have superb pigmentation. If you prefer a more low-key look, the Fresh Sugar Nude Tinted Lip Treatment is one of my beauty staples. To get your glow on, what could be more simple than NARS Illuminating Multiple in St. Lucia? Just swipe onto your bronzed skin and you don’t need anything more. Love!
The unofficial hairstyle of beach babes everywhere is beachy waves, of course. To get the look, spray Suave Professionals Sea Mineral Infusion Texturizing Sea Salt Spray on towel-dried hair, scrunch and let dry. This spray adds texture, loose waves and body.
